Re: Genuine, rare, centre console panel and gauges.

The OEM temp sensor replaces the sump plug, but you could fit one elsewhere. If you're not bothered about the precise thread, they're pretty cheap.

I just swapped the speedo from the 5 dial dash over to the 6 dial dash. That way I kept the same KM-count.

Cheers

Ah yes, those gauges look much better ;-) Nothing like an original Volvo radio/cassette player, to make the interior look complete ...

Re: '85 360 GLS

Those refurbished Leos look superb. Must try and get mine done some time ...

Well done on getting the car up and running again, it looks like the effort will be worth it.

Re: Project: Volvo 360 GLT for the Volvo-Trophy

That's amazing news, what a surprise find! HÖR LSDs are extremely rare. AFAIK only the Swiss "RSX-2"s had them as standard. Did your car originally come from Switzerland?

Re: 360 engine mount on ebay

I'm guilty too ... I have ONE new engine mount in stock, meaning I need another to complete the set ...
